The weather forecast for Saturday morning has declined to thunderstorms leading us to reschedule the District Pinewood Derby to Sunday afternoon, March 13. Scout car registration will begin at 1:00 pm and racing will begin at 2:00 pm.


While we regret the change, our goal is to provide a safe outdoor racing experience this year through evolving safety policies.


We understand some may not be able to make the new time. In addition to the posted 6-8 pm drop-off time tonight at Southern Village Community Park, Jere Julian will be at the Village Green site at the pre-posted registration time, 9:00-10:00 Saturday, for anyone who wishes to drop off their car to be raced on Sunday. We will then work with leaders to return cars and awards to each unit.
